FAQ

Can I use a single instance of the S3 beat to collect from multiple AWS S3 regions?

Yes. When configuring the S3 beat, you may add multiple SQS:Region combinations. These must be accessible with the same set of secret/access keys.


Can I use multiple sets of secret/access keys with a single instance of the S3 beat?

No, an instance of the S3 beat has a 1:1 relationship with a set of secret/access keys. If you require a second set of secret/access keys for another SQS queue, you must create a second instance of the S3 beat.
